The Grass Is Greener
IN THE ARMY NOW
I have a very shoogly internet connection at the moment so I'm writing quickly to get this up before it disappears again!
I want to show you the beautiful creations of menswear designer Craig Green. The London-born designer established his label in 2012, shortly after graduating the Fashion Masters course at Central Saint Martins and has already achieved critical and commercial success globally, stocked in stores like Farfetch, Dover Street Market, 10 Corso Como, Selfridges, Barneys, Joyce, Bergdorf Goodman and Galeries Lafayette and Matches.
The key concepts of uniform and utility run through every collection, whether that's mariners and seafarers or soldiers. He collides concepts of masculinity and femininity as we see not only military silhouettes but also skirts and beautiful tapestry-like patterns. Needless to say it's the eyelets and laceup details that excite me most about the AW16 collection as it has DIY potential written all over it.
Green’s accolades include Emerging Menswear Designer at The British Fashion Awards 2014, the BFC/GQ Designer Menswear Fund prize 2016, supported by Vertu, and British Menswear Designer at The Fashion Awards 2016.
